In all my E30s (5 total) and now in my 2003 325xi and 2003 330xi I have used either Amsoil 5w40 European Formula OR Lubromoly 5w40, changing every 5000 miles. Several of my E30's have well over 225,000 miles and no internal engine repairs (except for timing belt and tensioner on 325ix when required by mileage/time). Had tried Mobil 1, didn't seem to last as long, oil pressure was lower, fuel mileage went down and engine oil temp higher, and cost isn't much cheaper than Amsoil or Lubromoly. My 2 cents worth.

Yup +1 on the Amsoil. Nice comparison of all the various specs here;
